blazer basketball

tonight, we went out to cheer on our blazers at the UAB vs. MSU basketball game. tip off was at 6:00pm, and we ended up meeting my side of the family there since everyone bleeds green and gold, and well, our season has been pretty darn stellar. we all sat together and enjoyed watching the game. at one time, the girls enjoyed sharing a seat along with a rice krispy treat, and then later strawberries with cousin carson. the mabster pointed at blaze constantly throughout the game, and the toshy just stared at the glow of the court. here are some the first quarter ends, and tita karmie has awesome plans for lola since today is her actual birthday. much to lola's surprise, she was chosen to come down to the middle of the basketball court during the halftime show and play in the "trivia challenge." the announcer asked her a question (with all eyes and the camera man focused on lola), and she nailed it. her birthday was also announced as the crowd cheered along with our squeals of excitement stirred in. she won a legacy package filled with a bunch of goodies and UAB paraphernalia. thanks to karmie for making a birthday girl's dream come true. that was AWESOMATIC!! go lola, go lola!lastly, UAB squeaked in a "W" within the last seconds of the game by a score of 57 to 56. we left before the game ended to avoid traffic and the such so it was funny listening to lola give us a replay of the game via the phone. she said that no one was sitting and that she almost had a heart attack. too funny. we can't wait for the next home game. GOOO BLAZERS!!
